Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Baia Cascais
Very Good Hotel/Excellent Location
Just back from 9 nights at the Baia Hotel. Had a first floor room with a fantastic seaview. Could sit for hours on the balcony just looking at the sea and activities of Cascais. Room was very nice (not luxurious or huge) but clean, comfortable, air conditioned, TV, Shower etc. Buffet breakfast included in our rate -and it was really nice/plenty of fruit, bread, cheese, meat, eggs, juice tea/coffee, croissants, cake etc. We had snacks at the Pool Bar and they were ok, but a bit pricey. We did not have Evening meal, as there were so many restaurants to choose from in Cascais. Rooftop pool and Sundeck - really nice. Not great for children as no real facilities -but for couples etc it was excellent. The location is just perfect - only minutes away from Restaurants,Shops Bars etc. We found the staff pleasant and courteous. Would definitely stay there again - but do request a room at the Front, as the views are unbelieveable. Cascais is well worth a visit.
Good location, Staff Not very good
View and location are great. Staff not very friendly. Rooms are not impressive. Parking on site.
The Hotel was in a great location - on the waterfront and right downtown and just steps to Cascais' great shopping too. The staff was super accomodating as they arranged for an early check-in for us. The breakfast buffet was more than sufficient and much more complete than many others I've experienced. If ever in Cascais again, I'll definitely stay at the Hotel Baia!
Great views, average hotel
We stayed here in October 2004. Although the views from the rooms are terrific, the hotel is just average. As long as you don't expect anything special you will not be disappointed. The rooms are old, but clean, and the breakfast adequate.
I stayed here and found the Hotel ideal for location, comfortable beds and they were cleaned everyday when we were out. The staff were friendly and accomodating. I would recommend as a place to stay although i suggest you ask for a seaview on the forth floor. Enjoy.
Unfortunately, we only had the one night here as an alternative to staying our last night in Portugal in the bustling center of Lisbon.
(Dec.18/03) Our 4th floor, center room had a great view over the ever changing, beach and bay of fishing boats coming and going. Close to a very upscale shopping area, bars, restaurants and shops. Room was clean and comfortable, desk staff were polite and friendly. The buffet breakfast (included) was not up to the standard we had experienced had other hotels in Portugal. I would rate about 6 out of 10. Defintely would like to return to this hotel, because of its great location, and stay longer.
Superb location, great view, excellent service - but shame about breakfast
My wife and I stayed in the Hotel Baia for five nights, late September 2003. Great holiday. It has by far the best location in all of Cascais and is central to all activities and amenities. The bedrooms are a bit small but have great view from balcony. Management and staff very attentive and friendly.
The only downside was the somewhat disappointing breakfast - more especially the tepid and tasteless couled with the fact that there was no fresh fruit juices.
Apart from that one issue with braekfast - great hotel and well worth consideration.
Home Away From Home
The Hotel Baia is the perfect place to stay in Cascais. The view from our balcony is an ever changing scene from typical Portugese life. The rooms are comfortable,but not fancy and the staff is wonderful. They will give you all the attention and help you need or want. The maids and desk help have become our friends over the last four years and we are looking forward to our next 3 weeks in March. Everything is within walking distance of the hotel and very close to the bus and train stations. The room price includes breakfast daily and it is very good.
Especially the coffee!
Perfect view; terrible service
Hotel Baia has one of the best views of anywhere we've ever stayed. Our room directly overlooked the beach and colorful fishing boats. At 5 pm daily we sat on our balcony and watched the fishermen bring in the daily catch. The rooms were mediocre and drab, but it didn't matter as we couldn't bring ourselves away from the balcony. The worst fault of the hotel was its service -- the worst of any hotel I've ever stayed.
The gentlemen at reception were aloof, unhelpful, and at times rude.
Would I stay there again? You bet! The view was worth it all. I also thought the hotel was very reasonably priced for its location. It is also central to good restaurants and shopping.
Hotel Baia Cascais
The perfect location in Cascais within walking distance of most everything. The rooms are of decent size yet the furnishings are minimal. I had a one bedroom suite that I would consider most disappointing. The living room consisted of a not very attractive leather couch, period! No hair dryers in the bathroom. Even though I found everything to be clean, the hotel is showing its age from the roof top pool to the breakfast room. The Best Western Citadela ( a 4 star property which is not as good a location ) would be my pick since the rooms are more up to date and the breakfast room was far superior!

... luxurious hotel, and our room was large, modern and comfortable. The hotel itself offers every creature comfort that one could wish for. After unpacking we took a wander down along the waterfront, along with great hordes of tourists and local Portugese. It was packed! You could barely move. Definitely not our scene, but fortunately for us the citadel walls seemed at first to keep the bulk of the hoi polloi out, even though some tourists were venturing inside to view ...
... 3 wonderful weeks and headed for Lisbon, we took the scenic route and along the way stopped at a village near Cercal. We had noticed tents in a paddock and assumed it was a farmers market day, which it was. As it was lunchtime, we found a table in a makeshift outdoor restaurant and ordered their grilled peri peri chicken with salad, bread and olives. I can say without hesitation ...
... yet. This includes the cobblestone roads with their tiny four by four inch squares.
The beach drive was beautiful, we reach the car rental place and Debbie and Mike get their car. It is a mini-me of The Rattler, identical but so young at 12,000 km. Shiny, clean, and ready for the road. We pack up the trunk, the back seat....Mike arranged his coordinates with Cynthia. This is when Debbie said "I was a little worried when Mike couldn't find reverse". It was ...

I know some of you are waiting for it but she is managing well and will publish soon. Maybe....she just needs to input some addresses. We will get that organized tomorrow. The Provans head up to Porto on Monday. Our time together has gone by very fast.
... to Isabel's place. This was just a short stop on our way to Lidia's place where we generally chilled out and had dinner. Bianca and I had a walk to the beach, passing the citadel and various statues. The beach was beautiful, the sand golden and soft and someone had sculpted a dragon from ...
